Our last evening in Adelaide and after being out and about since late morning with TDU plans, this was a welcome ending to a big day. We did not have a booking and the place was getting busy, so we were lucky. We shared three tapas plates and everything tasted very good. Plates arrived staggered so food was hot and... More

Providing you enjoy being choked out by bouncers for spilling beer. Not sure if its a game that security plays at patrons expense, but they seemed more concerned with keeping score than me safe.

This place has some interesting decor and music, mainly focusing on Asia and the Middle East, with lots of cumbia/salsa/latin music. We got a table as we were starving and it's a tapas concept with an extensive menu, but they offered us a chef's tasting menu for $30 each. This had A LOT of dishes coming out all the time... More

At $28 for a main, side and a non alcoholic drink it's a little pricey for lunch and even the $25 special was on the costly side, however, the food was beautiful and plenty of it. There was a mix up with one of our mains but it was sorted out surprisingly quickly. They are not usually open for lunch... More

Called in for early evening tapas and were not dissapointed. Good selection and we really enjoyed the ones we choose. My wife also enjoyed the house wine.

We went on a Wednesday and enjoyed their $50 dollar deal of a large platter for two including a glass of house wine and salsa lesson. The dark wood and Moroccan theme gave the venue a relaxing yet vibrant atmosphere. The food was very good and the Salsa lessons (starting at 9.30pm) were a fun touch to a romantic night... More

I am thoroughly disappointed with the revised menu - tapas and starters!? That's all you guys have to offer? I remember coming to you two years ago, and your menu had a lot more variety and sass. Now, we can't even enjoy a decent dinner without ordering EVERYTHING on your menu to have a satisfying belly. Making dishes available on... More

Really funky tapas bar with tasty food. Staff were also great fun and very helpful. Chose from large tables, small tables soft chairs or couches there is something for everyone. The evening was complemented by some good music, marvellous.
